There is nothing more freaky than the latest deep fake video technology. Like it or loathe it, you must admire the craftsmanship. A first class example is from EZRyderX47 on Youtube where he has edited Back to the Future featuring the transformation of Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox into Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland.
In the beginning, this was produced by adjusting every video frame by hand. The technology has moved onto mapping video and it is only a matter of time when this is done automatically by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in realtime.
If you have not seen back to the future, these two characters do not appear in the movie. They are played by Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox. The technology remaps the new actors face (Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland)
This is featured in a great article by AWN. You will think twice on believing video technology again.
My key thoughts
- Powerful AV technology
- Huge possibilities for future of movies and television
- Blown the lid on ‘The camera is always right’ theory
- So real, there may be call on validation of real and fake within movies
Please contact me more more information on this technology and what is possible.
